Re: URL specification change LC8.1 to LC9.x [RESOLVED]

Matthias: It worked! By the way the terminal command only shows the plug-ins in the user library. So, I did not see these Adobe plug-ins the first time. I used the Finder to go to System Library/ internet plugins folder and there they were! (I do wonder whether this problem will occur if a user of t...

In terminal do:

Code: Select all

open ~/Library/Internet\ Plug-Ins/
And see if there's anything Adobe-looking in there.
I did; it opened the Internet Plug-Ins window; no Adobe items. In fact, the only entry is "Dish Anywhere Player.plugin"!

If you open the PDF in your browser, what URL does it show?
file:///Users/MyName/PiaData/activities/A101.pdf

Re: URL specification change LC8.1 to LC9.x

I have tried the following: 1. "/Users/JohnDoe/MyData/A101.pdf" 2. "file:///Users/JohnDoe/MyData/A101.pdf" 3. "file:/Users/JohnDoe/MyData/A101.pdf" 4. Running each of the above through URLencode() 5. Running each through replace " " with "%20" In all cases, LC9.5.1 on MacOS10.14.6 crashes. * The pro...

Re: URL specification change LC8.1 to LC9.x

Hi Klaus: I had mentioned in an earlier post that when I opened https://www.adobe.com/support/products/enterprise/knowledgecenter/media/c4611_sample_explain.pdf in Safari, copied the URL and pasted it in the URL field of the browser widget, and changed from edit to run mode, LC crashed. Does that ha...

Re: URL specification change LC8.1 to LC9.x

Hi Klaus:
When move the cursor to the bottom of the screen in Safari (with pdf file open),
the image with 4 options pops up (see attached). So, it is not Acrobat.

Re: URL specification change LC8.1 to LC9.x

do not use: ... ## put URLendcode(it) into tTemp ## Try with: replace SPACE with "%20" in tTemp ... These are different! Klaus: I can do that, but URL has no spaces (the filename is A101.pdf and I take care not to use any spaces in my folder names). What happens if you open that PDF right in SAFARI...

Re: URL specification change LC8.1 to LC9.x

It is getting more complicated! 1. I tried to load an online pdf document (from Adobe, no less) and copied into the URL field of the widget the following: https://www.adobe.com/support/products/enterprise/knowledgecenter/media/c4611_sample_explain.pdf LC crashed! 2. I tried an online html document, ...

Re: URL specification change LC8.1 to LC9.x

Here's something else: 1. Most of the files on my Mac are in iCloud Drive (local drive that is backed up in iCloud). I had specifically created a folder *outside* of iCloud drive for keeping documents that I was using in my LiveCode app. Accessing these pdf documents is what is crashing LC. 2. I cop...

Re: URL specification change LC8.1 to LC9.x

Hi Jean-Marc and bogs: No luck! LC crashes every time! (Just to be sure, I shut down and restarted my computer -- to rule out system corruption issues. Also, the fact it works in LC8.1 rules out a lot of other possibilities). MacOS 10.14.5, LC 9.5.1 I guess it is the OS (Mojave). Maybe someone with ...

Re: URL specification change LC8.1 to LC9.x

1. It appears that the Window's version is being very forgiving! The Mac version crashes every time! 2. The standard compliance text I had posted in the original post says that we must encode the URL. It is not necessary in my example (all chars are alphanumeric, no spaces). I went ahead and convert...

Re: URL specification change LC8.1 to LC9.x

Hi bogs: In Mac, /Users is the root directory and /Users/JohnDoe is the "Home" directory. So, it is file:// followed by the full path name (giving rise to "///") And it works in LC8.1, so the syntax is correct. Also, I am surprised that you say that simply putting the file path (without the keyword ...
